#3932614 2V2 titles coming back?

Posted Speedymart on 29 August 2013 - 08:01 AM

They mentioned in a tweet a week or so ago that they finally admit 2v2 will always be more popular then 3v3, and even though they gave up trying to balance it, it may be worth changing their stance on it due to its sheer popularity.

Except Abn actually knows how to play arena and is 2900+ across all three brackets, and no one actually gives a flying fuck if he cheats whereas the world explodes when Bailamos does.
Speaking personally, I have known of Abn for several years. That Arcane Mage at 27xx, oooo. I got to fight against him a bunch of times doing boosts years ago in what must have been Cataclysm, and his mechanical skill was above my reproach. I also recently spent some time with him on Skype and found him to have a similar... lack of social development which I share, so he must have been really, really good(like me, h3h.)

But I digress: there are people like Abn who.. have respectable ratings, have respectable histories, have streams where you can go and watch them play, open to your criticism - I believe you can quantify GCD management, positioning, general awareness and efficacy:opportunity, optimal cooldown usage in conjunction with team synergy/strategy: you can judge these things about another player, or about another team.  

I know, Reedwise always arguing and writing essays and I can only read on a 5th grade level this so fucking annoying man, I KNOW OKAY. I am just trying to say, this website is called Arena Junkies, people who have played and hopefully won most of their arena games. You may not like me, but I am a real multi R1/Gladiator. Not like, one of those dudes who was always sort of around that rating, not like how literally everyone is "multi R1" post 2013 like, I have a legitimate arena history which can be traced on the internet.

There is strong, irrefutable evidence which clearly shows that Bailamos has never even been Gladiator legitimately. He shouldn't even have access to this website. I am not being edgy, this is the truth. Perhaps I am washed up, irrelevant, deserving of your criticisms certainly - but at least I have met the requirements to post on this website, and atleast Abn could post on this website if he so desired.

Respect should be given based on merit, that is the only way a free society can function. We may not all be American, but we can still all get justice. Bailamos is a member of this community who openly violates its rules and he has been tolerated long enough. Truly, his only attribute or 'talent' is being the only person on the entire planet Earth who is still forced to care about RBGs due to an unfortunate financial situation. Despite his claims about his "Nobel laureate professors," the only behavior I have ever seen him exhibit is a sort of running around whilst stating obvious game knowledge into his microphone with varying levels of emotion and competence.

Moreover, in all of my dealings with Abn he has treated me with respect and dignity. When I dealt with Bailamos he behaved insecurely, pretended to be a female human instead of the shitty male human he actually is, and then he blocked me after losing a gentleman's wager. Literally, he found me, talked shit and got stomped by not me alone, but the legion at my command.

I believe a Rogue named Pikaboo played his character for his character's only Gladiator title and thus, his name should not be mentioned in the same conversation as a class hero like Abn.

actually they are not prot, they are gladiator stance, and glad stance has no reduced damage and shield barrier is 8k absorb, so a furry warrior actually survives better than a glad stance. there is no one going defensive stance because the damage is 0.

I was talking about glad stance, that's all I've been talking about for the last 20 pages.

Glad stance has more armor, 30% parry/block, demo shout, and the best part is last stand doesn't lose the health when it ends unlike rallying cry, which scales insanely well with commanding shout and enraged regen.

Shield barrier is an awful ability, especially as arms. The best counter to pressure is pressure, not aimlessly auto attacking because you're spending all your rage on a shitty absorb.

--

To all my warrior friends who are basing their fury findings of PTR, don't. You're going to be woefully disappointed at 100. Fury is essentially a wet noodle that seems to never die due to very strong self healing, while doing nothing else.

Arms does solid damage, but it's incredibly inconsistent. The second your target starts kiting you, and they will, you're completely fucked. With the current way rage works, you'll be able to charge and get two attacks off that consist of 70% of your overall damage. If one of these abilities dodges or miss, every single ounce of pressure you thought you might get for finally catching the target is gone.

With the overly nerfed warrior mobility, this will happen a lot. Even as prot with banner and double charge, I become furious at attempts to chase posthaste hunters, freedom'd pallys, or god forbid the plethora of druids.

Arms has even less tools to close that gap, and they just don't work. It could do alright if they had a more consistent rotation, such as having overpower to fill the gaps, but they don't. It's CS, MS, whirlwind spam. That's it. If CS or MS are unable to connect in any form, you are a walking toy until they're back off CD. God forbid that you use both abilities and their healer is CC'd a foot away and you're unable to use whirlwind. Slam is not a viable option either, mainly due to inconsistent rage generation. You'll either be completely starved, or get two auto crits in a row and can't seem to spam whirlwind fast enough to make use of it. It isn't fun to play and most importantly the effectiveness of the spec itself even when played to complete mastery is questionable.

I understand that a lot of you guys want the spec to work, most likely as some form of debt you feel to the spec for it serving so well in the past, but just don't. You're only going to disappoint yourselves infinitely more, and Blizzard will not be correcting their mistake until 6.1 at the earliest.

i did more testing (again this is only ptr) with SMF and really the damage you put out with chaining executes is insane, i have still yet to encounter any glad stance warriors but still the damage output fury can put out is really good. I wish i had a crack at th beta so i could tst out level 100 though.

As for siegebreaker, again i would change it to deal 100-150% wep damage and incap the target for 4 sec. that way its worth replacing fear over (especially on blades edge or dal sewers where knockbacks are really effective. But i had a feeling AM would be the best because ravager doesn't follow the target. the only thing i see rav being good for would be rogue openers to prevent them.

But all in all, we still need charge stun baseline and/or intervene root break baseline

I think the only other class that brings it now is WW monk eh? I think hunters lost theirs? 50% MS might be a bit much though, my suspicion is that that big a healing debuff makes warrior/rogue mandatory.

But seriously this is the perfect niche for warrior--- anti-healer melee. Hell, even if the big MS is a cooldown, it'd be enough to differentiate the class.

50% MS has been around for so long, and casters have historically still held stronger positions even before they gave them their 20% MS in late wrath. Honestly, a lot of the "reductions" they did in cata I still have issues with. 8 second CC, 15 second interrupt CD, MS reduction, spell reflect CD increase, mana being a utility resource rather then damage, ect. I'd like to see what the game would be like if they just reverted these back to their wrath levels in addition to the old dispell system. Even if it was just to test for a week, I'd like to see how it'd play out in today's enviorment.


What would be cool is if they had a glyph that made shield slam apply an MS, but make it exlusive with the dispell glyph. Perhaps a glyph for arms that increase MS to 50%? That would really shake some games up I think.


Still want charge stun back though. I mean at this point I'd be suprised if we see a single mechanic change to prot or arms anymore. Patch goes live in 2-3 weeks after all.

A BoS mechanic useable only when enraged and ticks rage away for a sprint (not a full sprint obv just some speed increase) would be decent. Sort of a deaths advance/BoS combine.

How about this: charge stuns again, Warbringer changed to a passive such that you can't be reduced below 100% speed while enraged. Enrage uptime is reduced drastically from live since crit is so much lower, and since fury mastery scales so much more poorly it adds a little more value for mastery for that spec. Also fits flavor wise with the unstoppable juggernaut concept.

That could work, or even if it were just short snare/root surpression would be fine to because sitting in roots with nothing zero ranged pressure and no way out other then trinket/BS or avatar is just wrong. Blizz should do the right thing and make charge stun again. mobility took a major hit and we can't even break out of roots now so i dont think its too much to ask to get the stun back on charge.

Hell give  us improved hammy again too while there at it, or some other form of cc other then a talented stun and a 1.5 min cd fear.

except that this game has nearly run its course.. WoW has been around for 10 years now. Its about time for something new. World of starcraft, world of diablo, Anything else.. please. Orcs and humans are about as boring as a meatloaf by now. Give us something new. I want a freaking filet mignon with lobster tail and littler shrimp skewers. Give us something to be excited about . Everything about wow is just so old.. Yet unfortunately, its still the best thing around.
